Comforts of Home – Artomatic 2009 installation. Glass, ceramic, cast aluminium

Megan has written about her work:

In my sculpture I capture moments in a narrative and express them as artifacts (or sometimes artifice). In many cases the narrative is autobiographical, but through the reduction of the story to a few simple objects I hope to make the narrative more universal and at the same time create an air of personal mystery.
